A truly enchanting aroma - a blend of sultry musks, spices, sandalwood, patchouli, carnation, bergamot, jasmine and hint of vanilla. This unisex scent is almost hypnotizing and will make your mind wander to places never been and inspire your creativity the same way it did for the artist behind the beautiful design - Anneli Akinde.
La Bohème is our second release from a project "JOIK in cooperation with Estonian designers.
The design for La Bohème candle is created by an Estonian artist, Anneli Akinde. Anneli studied art at Tartu Art College and subsequently Graphic Art at the Estonian Academy of Arts. Drawing inspiration from nature she particularly focuses her attention on the forest and flowers, their patterns textures and repetitive form.
La Bohème is available with limited edition design until March 2015, after which it will become available as a part of our regular candle selection.
Candle is hand poured. Approximate burn time ca. 30 hours in glass tumbler.Soy wax is a natural candle wax, from renewable natural resource – soybeans. It is also completely biodegradable. Soy wax burns cleaner than paraffin candles and last up to 50% longer than a comparable paraffin candle. We use very high quality cosmetic grade fragrance oils in our candles that are true to their name and give out a pleasant aroma while burning.
How to use JOIK La Bohème soy wax scented candle 145gPlease follow these simple, yet very important candle burning rules to ensure a safe and pleasant burn of your JOIK candle: * when burning your JOIK candle for the first time, burn it until a melted wax pool reaches the edge of the glass. This ensures an even burn of your candle. It is recommended to follow this rule every time you burn a candle as this ensures you get the most out of your candle * ALWAYS trim the wick to 5 mm before you light your JOIK candle. This ensures the wick does not ‘mushroom’ and smoke. If the wick is not trimmed, the flame can get too big and the wick can produce smoke - burning a candle under these circumstances can be dangerous and it also damages the quality of the candle burning experience. If you see the flame getting too big or smoking, put out a candle, trim the wick and you can relight the candle if desired. Do not burn your JOIK candle more than 3 hours at a time. This ensures a longer life of your candle. Blowing out a candle can produce smoke - instead, dip the wick into melted wax, straighten and re-center for your next burning. Discontinue burning when you have 1cm or less of wax in your JOIK candle. Always burn a candle on a heatproof surface away from objects that can catch fire. Be careful when moving a burning candle – the class can be hot. Keep a burning candle out of reach of children and pets. Do not burn a candle in a draught. Never leave burning candle unattended! If your glass has got soot around the edge (because you haven’t been trimming your wick...), use a paper towel to gently wipe it off and clean the glass.

Reviews for JOIK La Bohème soy wax scented candle 145g
I bought this for a present and it looks lovely, and smells absolutely divine, however when burning you can hardly smell it - it has a very faint smell only. A bit disappointing really but not sure if it something to do with soy wax candles.
